  • Blueberry Pancakes

    You can’t go wrong with good ol’ fashioned blueberry pancakes . We used Greek yogurt in our recipe giving our pancakes extra flavor. Adding blueberries on top of your pancakes not only adds to the taste but also the presentation! How blue-tiful!

  • Mighty Maple Peanut Butter Pancakes

    Peanut butter and maple syrup aren’t staples in the food guide pyramid but we sure think they should be! Our yummy maple pancake recipe makes for a killer breakfast treat. The peanut butter makes the pancakes extra fluffy and delicious with each bite!

    These sweet apple pancakes can be made to taste. Smitten Kitchen states that you can use different types of apples for a different taste. Topped with delicious powdered sugar, these pancakes are sure to make you want to start your day early. Yum!

    We’re nuts over coconut pancakes. She Wears Many Hats creates this recipe using coconut milk and shredded coconut which makes the batter extra fluffy.
